Track Name: Shine a Light
Shine a Light


Mercy Me Ive grown so tired
Strung my despair across a Moonlight Mile
Shooting stars erase an empty sky
Lost my mind staring at the night

This river twists with denial
Deep and cold mean and vile
A silent dose of whats gone wrong
I never thought I would live too long
(Sworn believer
Dies of fever
No good reason
Cold black season)

I take what I want
I take what I can
Never worry about paying it back
I shine a light into the blackness

Heaven knows whats in my mind
better thoughts of much better times
Static sounds, Lost friends and fires
Some turned out to be great liars

Bought some time at the magic store
A Voodoo cross, and an evil eye
Spanish moss around a totem poll
Said a spell and let it go
(Sworn believer
Dies of fever
No good reason
Cold black season)

I take what I want
I take what I can
Never worry about paying it back

I shine a light into the blackness
We shine a light into the blackness
Come shine a light into the blackness
Track Name: C'mon
C'mon

Come on little Queeny
Take a ride with me
I got everything you could want
And nothing you need

Let’s go Miss Ramona
Don’t you feel like driving fast
Both your hands in my pockets
Now there ain’t no turning back

Crime It never gets old
I got a big black heart of gold
Hail Hail it’s only Rock & Roll


Beautiful Delilah
you gonna kill this night
I love it when shes loaded
she likes to leave on the lights

Oh Carol Baby
I refuse to let us die
Meet you in back in Memphis
I’m so lonely tonight

You don’t have to choose
It’s all right
Some were born to lose
It’s all right
Do you care if I abuse
This love tonight
Even if we lose
It’s all right

Come on Maybellene
Ring a bell with me
School days are gone forever
And so are most dreams.
Track Name: Oblivion Highway
Oblivion Highway

Rolling down this oblivion Highway
No time for goodbyes ‘cause life keeps passing by me.

Say a prayer for the things ill do tomorrow
Drop bombs like confetti to clear this life of sorrow.

Gone, with the speed of sound

Should I get this high?
If I get any further I’d miss the sky
It doesn’t feel like lying
If I got any closer I’d touch the sun
This Oblivion Highway is for everyone
This Oblivion Highway is for everyone

Rolling down this decimated highway
Forgot what it cost to try and do things my way

Unfazed by the haze that keeps the graveyards haunted
Stole love from a gun that’s unfed and unwanted

Gone, with the speed of sound

Should I get this high?
If I get any further I’d miss the sky
It doesn’t feel like lying
If I got any closer I’d touch the sun
This Oblivion Highway is for everyone
This Oblivion Highway is for everyone
Track Name: Low Tide
Low Tide

Red Lights
Can get me through the night
And I never feel better
Than when sleep deprived

White lies
Are they ever wrong
Searching for new ways
To not belong

Blacked out
We all die of fright
And it's really got me thinking
Whos gonna turn off the lights

Made a vow
Tried not to break it
The devils got me believing
No body gets saved

Low tide- Full moon above my head
Green grass - Walked across till dead
High time - I let these flowers die
Grave yards - Keep me safe at night
Track Name: Morningside Lane
Morningside Lane

I don't like to think about it
How you slipped away
And now I feel so numb
With defecting gray
Yeah you burnt out baby
Oh you burned out young
You burned out so pretty
like the setting sun
You burned out faster than I could come

I tried not believing
Kept my eyes closed for days
Its these thoughts that I'm keeping as I walk down Morningside Lane

The sun keeps pouring down
Revolver spins through my head
I watch my shadow crawl
Filling cracks that others left
Yeah you burned out baby
Oh you burned out young
You burned out so pretty
like the setting sun
You burned out faster than I could come

I tried not believing
Kept my eyes closed for days
Its these thoughts that I'm keeping as I walk down Morningside Lane

I'm with the lonely now
I'm in between
And I live through songs
I'm letting nobody in!
Yeah you burned out Sallie
Oh you burned out young
You burned out so pretty
like the setting sun
You burned out faster than you could shoot your gun!

I tried not believing
Kept my eyes closed for days
Its these thoughts that I'm keeping as I walk down Morningside Lane
